How’s life in the digital age in Slovenia?

Slovenia’s performance in opportunities and risks of the digital transformation is mixed. 81.7% of the population have access to the Internet, but the levels of Internet use and the variety of uses of the Internet are relatively low. Slovenia has one of highest levels of inequality of uses of the Internet among all OECD countries, meaning that a small portion of the population makes use of a large range of different online activities, but the majority of people only use a few key activities. Key online activities in the dimensions of health and social connections are not widely used, with 45% of people having used online social networking sites in the last three months. Overall, digital skills are around average OECD levels and 72% of students have access to digital resources at school, which is higher than the OECD average. However, the share of people who make use of online courses is relatively low. Given that many online activities are not widely taken up, privacy abuses and digital security incidents are relatively rare. Nonetheless, cyberbullying is more common in Slovenia than in other countries, with 10% of children reporting having been a victim.

Note: This wheel depicts Slovenia’s relative performance in terms of key opportunities and risks in the context of the digital transformation. The centre of the wheel corresponds to the lowest outcome observed across all OECD countries, while the outer circle corresponds to the highest outcome. For opportunities (in dark blue) longer bars indicate better outcomes, whereas for risks (in yellow), longer bars indicate worse outcomes. If data are missing for any given indicator, the relevant segment of the circle is shaded in white.
